For about 2 yrs. now, I’ve always wanted to visit Boston, MA to see for myself all the many historical sites that are there for all to see. Early this year I decided that I’m going to do this. I started looking at places to stay, how to get there, what route to take, and the sites I want to see & photograph. Found that it will take me a good 8 hrs. to drive there via car.

I also talked with a good friend of ours who is originally from a town near Boston. She told me that the city is very crowded and just full of other tourists that like the same thing as me. She suggested that I stay in a motel outside the City and take a train into the historical sites. This way I can see what I want, grab the same train, and get back to my motel. Was told that traffic is very hectic, and if you don’t know where your going you can get lost real easy. So, I started to consider all this as I made early plans to go there.

Then with all this stuff about the COVID started coming around, I started thinking twice about what I’m about to do. Then, prices of most everything is increasing. Gas is terrible, motel prices were just way to high no matter where, food is getting more & more expensive. The more I thought about it, I decided to cancel this road trip. It’s just to much to pay out right now. I had to put this on a List of what I want to see until the economy get’s better, which I don’t think will happen very soon.

The Old State House in Boston.

Be advised that these Images I post are not mine. I did not photograph them. Got them off the Internet. The Old State House was the 1st place I wanted to visit. It’s where the Declaration of Independence was first real from the very same balcony you see in 1776. It’s also where some of the Boston patriots were shot by the British in 1775, happened. There are lots of other historic things that happened here, but I can’t remember them all. For a small fee you can tour the inside and see what’s there.


Again, not my image. FANEUIL HALL was my 2nd place to visit. It, too, has quite a long history to it. I did read about it, but it would be alot to mention on here.

So, it looks like I’m not going to make it to these places & lot’s of others. I was looking forward to seeing all this, but it’s been ruined because of the economy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.

  1. I’m sorry you can’t make the trip right now. One of my cousins and her family lived there for many years. I remember my visits fondly. If you do get there the part about the traffic is true, the city is not a grid and can be confusing. I liked the city being situated at the edge of the water. I hope someday the visit will be possible.

  2. I visited Boston for one day several years ago. Walked a bit of the Freedom Trail and visited a few of the historic churchyard cemeteries and saw some of those original buildings that were there in revolutionary times. I’d like to go back, and I hope you get a chance to visit there soon.
